The Trinidad and Tobago Legion of the Royal Commonwealth Ex-Services League yesterday presented Her Excellency Paula-Mae Weekes O.R.T.T., President of the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago, with the first Poppy signifying the beginning of this country’s observance of Remembrance Day. Remembrance Day is observed on November 11th each year as it was at the “eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month” of 1918 that the armistice bringing an end to hostilities between the Allies of World War I and Germany was signed. Remembrance Day honours the fallen soldiers of World Wars I and II. Making the presentation to Her Excellency were Colonel Lyle Alexander, President, and Mr. Denzil Mason, Trustee, of the Trinidad and Tobago Legion of the Royal Commonwealth Ex-Services League. The League is a member of the Royal Commonwealth Ex-Services League whose remit is to help ex-Service men and women who served The Crown and their widows who are now in need.
